Exclude art folders from scans

I have lots of art folders within my album and artist folders and these folders then show up on my Home page. Be good if there was an option to exclude these folders from scans, the existing exclude options don't appear to work at folder level.

Thanks

Workaround: Change the security rights on your Art Folders, so Madsonic is not able to read them.

Greetings Kae

Thanks Kae, I'll try your workaround in the meantime.

We'll add a setting that lets you define folders to exclude when scanning your library.

I'll guess, you have to try yourself :-)

But as fas as I can see in -> Settings -> Media Folders you can use regex to create crazy patterns.

Multiline Textfield would be so much easier for nun regex-users :-) But then, others will complain about missing flexibilities...

Try the | to add an OR expression, like (Extrathumbs) | (Extrafanart)

Maybe this helps for starting?

I use this expression and works well for me. You may need to amend it depending on your requirements and folder names:

Code: Select all

(?i)scan\w$|(?i)cover\w|(?i)artwork$|(?i)scans covers$|(?i)album[ ](?i)art$|(?i)art$|(?i)images$|(?i)scans[ ](?i)deluxe$
You can try inserting Extrathumbs and Extrafanart in a similar style but definitely worth checking out the links on Regex that Matt posted so you can make it work for your setup.
